The Front desk was great, shuttles to the wedding event were late, air conditioning worked, eggs at the post wedding brunch were awful (balls of what seemed to be powdered eggs), room was clean and bed was very comfortable, curtains darkened the room completely

We checked in for our anniversary and were surprised by Tiffani. She had the staff sign a card and surprised us with champagne, chocolate cake, and strawberries. Excellent service! She and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to make this stay memorable. We will return!

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past year. It is just fine. The rooms are adequate and clean. The exercise facilities are good for a Holiday Inn. Nice location if you are trying to catch a Reds game, just across the river.

Firstly, Sa'de at the front desk was an absolute queen of her position. She took care of everything I needed and was super courteous, friendly and approachable. I came in last minute, but that was not an issue. I stayed initially for two nights and ended up needing an additional two. Again, no issues. The location is prime...5 minute drive... More

Ive been staying here on business for over 10 years now and I will keep coming back. The location is perfect. On a nice day/eveningYou can walk to downtown Cincy in under 30 minutes, walk to Main Strasse in 10 minutes. You can also jump on the local shuttle that runs around the metro area for less than 2 bucks... More

The location is great for visiting Cincinnati. We were in town for a Reds game. The shuttle stops right outside of the hotel. The hotel itself was nice and clean and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed hanging out by the pool.

I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn for 2 weeks for a business trip. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The bed was comfortable. The internet was pleasantly fast. I used the treadmill multiple times and it worked fine. I liked the cold water dispenser in the gym and the towels to wipe my face. I was able... More

We stayed the night here after spending the day at the zoo. The grounds were clean and we didn't feel insecure about leaving our car parked out all night. The room and bathroom were clean. There are plenty of fast food chains and restaurants around the hotel (walking distance). The area is ok, the other people staying at the hotel... More

I was here on business in June 2015. First off, I have always had good service and stayed at nice Holiday Inns, so this is not against the chain. The actual hotel is in bad disrepair. The faucet in the tub kept coming out of the wall everytime I touched it. The rooms and hallways have a bad odor. One... More
